Objectives

We are a very small almshouse charity in the conservation area of Merton Park, South West London.  We offer housing for women over 55 yrs in need, who have previously lived in the London Borough of Merton.  Our residents mostly retired and live independently in this small community.  The Trustees are interested in their welfare and the practical maintenance of the building which dates from 1797.

Activities

We conduct regular welfare visits to the residents.  We plan for the future building maintenance and improvements, and we oversee day to day repairs and upkeep undertaken by a local contractor.  We have a small board of 7 trustees who meet quarterly to review progress.
